Worried Democrats Send Obama to Campaign in Georgia and Other States

Democrats are sending in the big guns. Obama will campaign in Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin ahead of the November midterms.

They would not be doing this if they felt good about the state of these races and Georgia is probably the election they are most concerned about this year.

Julia Musto reports at FOX News:

Obama to jump into midterm campaign with events in Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin

Former President Barack Obama is traveling to Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin this month to stump for Democratic candidates weeks before the midterm elections.

First, on Oct. 28, he heads to Atlanta, where Stacey Abrams is making another gubernatorial run against incumbent rival Gov. Brian Kemp, and Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock is facing off against former professional football star Herschel Walker.

Biden has yet to campaign with Abrams or Warnock.

In a release, Georgia Democrats said Obama would encourage residents to cast their ballots during the final week of early in-person voting in the Peach State.

On the following day, he heads north, joining Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist and Michigan Democrats in metro Detroit…

A release from the governor’s office said the event would focus on issues like abortion, voting rights and public education, which it said are “at risk in Michigan.”

Obama will also join Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, Attorney General Josh Kaul, Sen. Tammy Baldwin, Rep. Gwen Moore and Democrats up and down the ballot in Milwaukee.

Georgia is probably the priority after the debate there this week between Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker.

Walker had a very good night. Here are a few choice clips:

Even media outlets are saying Walker had a good night.

Meanwhile, Biden is headed to Pennsylvania to campaign for Fetterman.

The Washington Times reports:

Biden to campaign for John Fetterman in Pennsylvania next week

President Biden will travel to Pennsylvania next week to campaign for Democratic Senate hopeful John Fetterman, the White House announced Thursday.

Mr. Fetterman, who is in a tight, closely watched race against Republican Mehmet Oz, has come under increasing scrutiny since a stroke left him with auditory processing issues and raised questions about his ability to hold office.

The president will participate in a reception in Philadelphia for Mr. Fetterman next Thursday, the White House said. Mr. Biden will also make a stop in Pittsburgh.

There should be some great videos after that event.

Hercshel did well in the debate. Preview of Obama speech. Me, me, me, I, I, I repeat hundred times.

Is Ruby fabricating ballots to stuff in bins yet?

The ultimate Hail Mary. Obama has never had coattails He was great at getting himself elected but not others. He was also notoriously bad at his “brackets” and other predictions. His worst thing was his endorsement was the kiss of death.

    I was going to say exactly this. Winning down ballot races has always been in spite of Obama, not because of him. That Democrats are calling on Obama for help is not just an indication of their desperation. It is also one more indicator of how far they live from reality.

      We are also seeing that among the GOPe. The old guard is coming out to fight MAGA. Yesterday, Paul Ryan declared that “everyone knows” that Trump can’t win in 2024 and shouldn’t run. Ahem. Paul. Trump is not running in November 2022 and if he cannot win in 2024, why don’t you talk to us about his endorsements record?

      Ryan’s only hope is to convince all of Trump’s endorsees that they will lose if they don’t change their MAGA message?

      Plenty of losers from both wings of the Uniparty jumping out of the shadows near the end to take one last desperate shot at Trump.

        At DJT and all the other candidates on the ballot Nationwide who aren’t members in good standing of the bipartisan establishment and of course at all of us who reject the bipartisan establishment rule by elites.

        Bottom line is DJT is just the avatar for the rest of us. No matter how much the d/prog and rino grifters wish that ‘getting’ or stopping DJT would put the populist right in their place and things could go back to the normal graft and grifting that simply isn’t so.

        Romney’s running mate lectures Trump supporters on how to win a national election. Dump Trump, of course.

        The GOPe has been playing the same broken record since 2015.

        Ignoring that Trump got 75 million legitimate votes in 2020. About 15 million more than Romney/Ryan received only 8 years earlier.

        Many of the Romney/Ryan voters were holding their nose in 2012, only voting for them to vote against Obama. Including me.

        In contrast, a very large percentage of Trump voters would have crawled over broken glass to vote for him in 202. Including me, who didn’t vote for Trump or anyone else in 2016.

        Ryan is irrelevant.

          President Trump won an election. What did Romney/Ryan do?

          I warmly remember Obama on Kimmel, doing some skit on mean tweets, where he said there was one from @realDonaldTrump, saying “President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in U.S. history.” To which he replied “….at least I will go down as a president.”

          Oooops!! But the torch of failure has been passed to Biden, so Obama (and Carter) can rest easy.

      Isn’t Obama tarnished by his involvement as a puppet pulling Biden’s strings?

    The historical record shows he had the opposite of coattails. Right up thru the 2016 election.

    No, a minor Hail Mary. The ultimate is Biden escalating the Ukraine war to the nuclear level in order to game the election.

I thought the economy is doing great so why didn’t they request Joe?

Just envision Biden and Fetterman together trying to have a conversation ab lib?

Oh Jesus

And ones a President and Ones a Lt Governor

What? They didn’t want the mentally retarded pedophile-in-chief?

In a just world, Marxist meatpuppet Obama would rotting in prison for weaponizing the DOJ to spy on Trumpworld 2016.

My two worst political mistakes.

1. Believing Bush Jr.’s case for Gulf War II.

2. Voting for Obama.

I still cringe for each of those failures.

Heh! Big guns! obama has the worst endorsement record of any President in history.

The polls are starting to get real, and will be a lot more so in two weeks. I think the Rs have the momentum, plus I’m starting to see normally D-biased polls show Rs up in the congressional numbers. The most valuable indicators are when a pollster goes against type. The latest to fall is CBS, which is R +2.

Some will reply that Fox is D +3, which would be correct, but that has issues. Fox has run two polls over time; this one is Fox/Beacon/Shaw, and it has a quite prounced D lean. Also, it’s one of the few polls still using registered voters. At this stage, most have shifted to likely voters, which is more accurate and which reduces the tendency of RV polls to overcount Dems.

At the moment, I expect the Rs to win senate seats in GA, PA, and NV. Here in the West, with the time advantage, I’ll be watching NH. If the R wins that one, then the Rs will take CO and AZ. That would be +5, and if that happens they’ll be well over +40 in the House. At minimum, +2 in the Senate and +20 in the House. We’ll have a much better view two weeks from now. It doesn’t look like a repeat of 2010, but it sure looks like the Rs have the wind at their backs.

Here in WA State, if the R wins an upset it will be a major earthquake. I’d be shocked if it happened.

    I am watching something else – the Ukraine war. I normally vote on election day in person, but if nuclear weapons start getting used in Ukraine, I am going to vote early in person -immediately – even if there is a long line at the few government centers where you can vote. I expect Biden to use a nuclear war as a pretext for marital law and a nationwide stay-at-home order right before election day. Remember, there is now precedent for stay-at-home orders. If he did that, the only ballots that get counted are the early ones, since there will be no voting on Nov 8.

So, America’s self-anointed Mao/Lenin (pick one) decides to take a break from his conspicuously comfortable retirement to lead an 11th hour attempt to prop up the makeshift political and cultural and revolution ‘fundamental transformation’ he hoped to set in motion and then observe from afar while sipping imported champagne in his Martha’s Vineyard beachfront estate.

Too bad for the American Left he’s fundamentally lazy and nowhere near as driven, dedicated, and unrelenting as Mao and Lenin were.

Not sending the guy who allegedly got 81 million votes?

Why not

    Dimsdale in reply to rbj1. | October 16, 2022 at 2:58 pm

    It would make people wonder who those “81 million” were…

    How many legitimate votes do you think Joe really got? It’s upsetting that he got so many votes after doing very little his entire career and campaigning from his basement.

I live in the second most populated area of Georgia (behind Atlanta). So far I have seen bumper stickers for Herschel. None for Warnock or The Tank Abrams. Not many yard signs either for Rs or Ds, except those I’ve seen for Herschel.

BierceAmbrose | October 16, 2022 at 4:00 pm

So, Gropey-Joe is campaigning from the basement again? Why not. It worked last time.

BierceAmbrose | October 16, 2022 at 4:13 pm

They — “there are those who”, I hope — do remember that the current President Albatross was Premature Nobel’s VP? Not a great choice for distancing current candidates from The Basement Ice Cream Man.

If the Feckless-R’s had a political operation, or intent to win — but, who am I kidding? — they’d follow President Light-Bringer around on his stumping. He couldn’t talk for 10 minutes without slimeing the D’s, motivating the R’s. “I won” is a poor pitch to people who think their world is a mess.

As others have noted, “I’m a symbolism!” doesn’t translate well to others’ elections.

If the Georgia R-campaigns want to win, this is a gift: another guy to hang around the D-candidates’ necks, right next to Governor Election Denier. (Can we get a commission to investigate that?)

Now for reality.

On Friday, Kroger announced a merger with Albertson’s. If either of our thoroughly corrupt and disconnected parties actually cared one single bit about “working families,” it’d have taken approximately 10 minutes for them to announce their fierce opposition.

They won’t do it, because they are run by people who’ve never once had to worry about how much groceries cost. And then there are crowds like this comment section, and most others online, that are wrapped up in peripheral issues. Kids, does anyone here worry about not being able to feed themselves or their families?

Republicans red
Democrats blue
Neither of them
Give a shit about you

But it’s worse than that. A lot worse. Collectively speaking, we’re complete suckers. We allow this.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to RandomCrank. | October 16, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Have you bothered to stockpile, I have done so for years, mostly by buying sale items in quanity, my go being to lower product and transactional costs. A two year buffer is a fringe benefit.

    Right now, we are canning meats from the freezer, every day for the past month. That is a hedge against power outages and it is lowering the electric bill.

Oh, and kids? You’re all against Dementia Joe (so am I), and Stroke ‘Em Fetterman. Fine. But you’re all for Herschel Walker, who’s obviously a brain damaged liar. What was that about Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades?

Much political commentary by either side is about hypocrisy, as if that’s somehow either side’s specialty.
